Posted: November 14, 2009 in Random

wld dToday, November 14, is the World Diabetes Day. It’s celebrated every year by  millions of people worldwide  who engage in growing concern and awarness for diabetes health risks.  November 14 marks the birthday of Frederick Banting who was the one first to discover  insulin in 1922. The campaign slogan for 2009 is “Understand Diabetes and Take Control”. There was a walkathon that took place today at 9am today starting from the Yatch club till green island. I also found this badge below in Alrai newspapers from Wataniya telecomunication.
